Introducing Aura VT & Matrix VT Enhance Electronic System

What is Aura VT & Matrix VT Enhance?

Aura VT and Matrix VT Enhance is a pickup and preamp system that offers Fishman’s most advanced technology, Aura Acoustic Imaging, combined with most popular pickup in the world, the Acoustic Matrix.

Available exclusively on Martin guitars, Aura VT and Matrix VT Enhance offers an Aura Image specifically made for each guitar model, preserving the pure and unique acoustic tone of each instrument with studio microphone quality.

The natural, transparent tone of Aura is “enhanced” with a new bridge plate mounted pickup that adds dimension, resonance and body to your guitar tone.

With no control holes cut into the side of your guitar, Aura VT and Matrix VT Enhance is discreet and simple to use with Volume, Tone and Enhance Blend controls inside the sound hole and at your fingertips.

The result is a sound that is pure Martin, with more responsiveness to your playing dynamics and touch.

How it works:

  • Acoustic Matrix under-saddle pick-up, the world’s best-selling under-saddle pickup.
  • Aura Acoustic Imaging with one custom Image built into an internal active preamp.
  • Discreet, soundhole-mounted controls: Volume and tone controls up top and a new Enhance blend control on the lower part of the soundhole.
  • Battery box integrated into endpin jack for easy access.

Enhance Transducer

Fishman’s new Enhance Transducer is a bridge plate transducer that is mechanically and electrically optimized to bring out the dynamic and percussive elements of guitar playing.

The Enhance Transducer is specially designed to capture the longitudinal energy (dynamic and percussive attack) of the guitar top while being highly resistant to the transverse energy that manifests in string squeak, body handling noise, and parasitic feedback.

The Enhance Transducer adds these characteristics to the full spectrum audio performance of the Aura VT Enhance and Matrix VT Enhance to deliver a new level of sound quality and dynamic playing response.
